I'm not sure if it is still active or not (haven't seen a post in awhile), but you might try running the legal question past the Ham-Law reflector on altlaw.com (ham-law-request at altlaw.com)

Personally, I wouldn't do it, but grow lights are not illegal, and as long as you can tell people with a straight face that you thought they were lights for tomatoes or house plants, you might get away with it if society or the feds ever swings back the other way on the issue.

I am considering assisting one of the local grow shops in town, (we live
in Oregon, where medical use is state approved), select a set of lights
that are RFI friendly...  I would appreciate any comments on this from
anyone, dealing with two issues:

1.  Could one be considered as aiding a grow operation by this, ie. is
there a danger legally to the person assisting the shop?

2.  Can anyone suggest some RFI friendly grow light setup?

I dropped off a copy of our clubs RFI flier with the local Pot sales
shop here.  They say they will pass it around to the legal growers.  

I am considering a growers workshop about RFI.  Covering what RFI is,
how it harms things, how easy it is to locate, and what measures one
might take to reduce it.  I will not suggest things that could catch
houses on fire, etc, but only links to the various RFI sites.  It would
be really nice to have a list of RFI friendly grow lamps to suggest.  

It would be nice if the ARRL would ask their Attorney about question 1,
and post the response here in addition to anyone who might be an
attorney speaking out.
